SPACE SHUTTLE STATUS

The following summary reviews the status of the Space Shuttle

as discussed in the presentation today of John F. Yardley, NASA's

Associate Administrator for Space Transportation Systems, to the

House Subcommittee on Space Science and Applications.

A detailed Shuttle program review has been completed to permit

an accurate, updated assessment of cost, schedule and performance.

The review showed that substantial progress has been made in the

program this year.

Highlights include the successful completion of the approach

and landing test program of Orbiter 101, Enterprise, which has now

been shipped to the Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama,

for mated ground vibration tests; recent mission duration test firings

of the main engines at the rated power level; and the successful com-

pletion of the first phase of the three-engine configuration Main

Propulsion Test Program.
